Andrey Konovalov <andrey_konovalov>


  • created. llct and ll trees have been moved to 3.8. ll has vexpress, origen, and snowball (not 100% complete yet). The updates schedule at has been switched to 13.01, the 12.12 one has been moved to the "Previous cycles" (the link at the bottom of the wiki page)

  • the Android team requested more frequent ll updates (from daily to hourly), and is going to provide a few new topics for ll (perf, binder, ashmem)
  • bug 1090882 "Ethernet doesn't work on snowball with linux-linaro/mainline": the tb-ethernet git branch from Lee Jones has been added to ll tree as a new topic. When using dtb, ethernet works ok.
  • bug 1088504 "Need to build the DT blob for Snowball, Linux Linaro Tracking project": after merging the ethernet fixes, snowball works much better with dtb. Using emmc vs SD may still be the requirement.
  • bug 1097342 "linux-linaro ll-20121221.1 does not build for arm64" (the perf for Android patches): this particular issue is fixed in ll (ll-20130110.0 (the most recent v3.7 based ll): the incremental patches has been replaced by the cummulative one attached to the bug, gator has been disabled in the vexpress64.conf fragment in config-boards-3.7 branch; current 3.8 based ll: Bero's patch doesn't apply to 3.8 and is probably not needed there)
  • Bug 1099405 "OpenEmbedded boot test failure ": vexpress64


  • llct and ll updates as per the LinuxLinaroKernelSchedule

  • put the kernel/configs.git in order (sync up config-boards-tracking with current config-boards-3.7, fork the *-3.8 ones from *-tracking then, and continue keeping *-3.8 and *-tracking in sync)
  • bug 1088504 "Need to build the DT blob for Snowball, Linux Linaro Tracking project": modify the hwpack to use dtb. NB: there will be issues with: old u-boot in the boards in LAVA, (probably) SD errors - could LAVA use emmc?
  • verify git pushing from ci.l.o to g.l.o (try a test ci job following the Fathi's example), then set-up a jenkins job to construct the ll tree and to push it into people/ynk/sandbox-ll-tracking.git, then (after this would work ok for a week or so) switch this job to "the real" kernel/linux-linaro-tracking.git
  • create 2 ci jobs for aarch64 / linux-linaro[-core-tracking]
  • improve the script (new version would be ideal), and the wiki docs


  • side effects (u-boot, (probably:) sd vs emmc) when switching the snowball hwpack to booting with dtb. Would not be able to check if snowball boots from sd until Sat or Mon.




  • Fix kernel and qemu issues
  • Sent arm64 status report
